General Flavor Observations
Ethiopian Misty Valley

Misty Valley offers a delicious, clean cup that you will find to be medium to full bodied, fruit forward (blueberry), and sweet.
The underlying notes of milk chocolate are persistent through all roast levels, and the finish will display a bright, pleasing acidity.
The highlight of the profile, however, is the abundant fruit tones which range from strawberry to blueberry, depending on the Roast Level.

Fruit forward, clean, sweet, abundant chocolate, and very smooth.

In short, an outstanding Ethiopian Offering from Misty Valley!

Roast Level Profile Notes
Ethiopian Misty Valley

Ethiopian Naturals can have a wonderful complexity about them. I have selected Full City as our default roast level to focus on the balance of fruit and and body.
However, I can wholeheartedly recommend City Roast as well.

We are always happy to accommodate any roast level you prefer.
The notes below illustrate how changing the roast level will alter the profile:

City Roast (light roast)

This roast level is the best choice if you're seeking to experience pure Origin Characteristics.
A brighter finish will be noted, which is offset nicely by the chocolaty base and notes of hibiscus and strawberry on the finish.
The body is medium with a round mouth-feel pleasant notes of blueberry.

Full City Roast (medium roast) - Preferred

This roast level will offer the best balance of all the wonderful characteristics within the profile.
The persistent notes of milk chocolate are surrounded by a smooth mouth-feel, medium-full body and fruit forward tones of blueberry.
The finish will be crisp, long and sweet, with hints of strawberry as the cup cools.

Full City (+) Roast

This is a great roast level for a more syrupy mouth-feel, deeper body and fruit tones, and tempered acidity.
The finish remains sweet and long. If you prefer a more centered profile, this is a good choice.

Darker Roasts

Not recommended as darker roast levels will eclipse the attributes that make this such a wonderful coffee. However, if you enjoy the characteristics a darker roast can offer, then it is worth a try!

Additional Information
Ethiopian Misty Valley

This is a naturally processed coffee, meaning the ripe coffee cherries are dried in the sun on raised African beds for around 12-15 days.
This sun-drying process allows sugars in the cherry pulp to transfer into the bean, presenting in the cup as complex fruit flavors.
The raised beds provide airflow to facilitate a consistent drying process.

When the ripe cherries arrive at the mill for drying, they are constantly turned (day and night!) for the first 48 hours to ensure an even evaporation of the moisture from the cherry.
Doing so creates consistency and cleanliness in the cup.
After the coffee is fully dried and the skin, mucilage, and parchment removed, it is sorted and traded through the Ethiopian Coffee Exchange as a Grade 1 Yirgacheffe.

5 Stars
Coffea Fabulosa!
My palate is rather unsophisticated and I have never been one of those "It was angry, yet calm with a piquant bouquet" types, but this coffee really stood out to me. African and Indonesian coffees have always been my favourites and this one is no exception. Bright, clean, and full-bodied; super smooth with a very clean finish and not a hint of bitterness. And I can really taste the blueberries and dark chocolate! This coffee is good in the morning, at "teatime", after-dinner and in the evening whilst reading. There is never a bad time for a GOOD cup of coffee, and this one rates with the best of them.
